Transformed NLA Ofsted confirms school as most improved in Liverpool

North Liverpool Academy’s recent Ofsted inspection rated the school officially as a Good School, along with the exceptional academic results achieved in August 2016 confirms the school as the most improved in Liverpool.

Since the appointment of new Principal, Mike Westerdale’s in June 2016, the school has made significant changes to move the school forward.

The Ofsted team recognised the significant progress the school has made and continue to make.

The inspectors praised the Principals “highly effective leadership, clear vision, high standards” and “strong ambition,” and emphasised that “the school is well placed to continue improving.”

Rated good across the board, inspectors said that: “Pupils enjoy their learning and have positive relationships with one another and their teachers.”

“Pupils behave well in lessons and take pride in their work”

The report also praised the Sixth Form saying: “It is effectively led and consequently has improved since the last inspection. Outcomes are good because students are taught well. When they leave, an increasing number of students move on to university courses, further education, employment and training” showing a sustained picture of improvement.

Mike Westerdale, Principal, said: “The pace of change has been phenomenal. I am so proud of the school’s achievement in being graded as good in all areas by Ofsted.

“It is a real privilege to work as part of a whole school community.

“Everyone has worked so hard to make the school what it now is, and we will continue to build on these strengths into the future.”
